We grow a variety of plants hydroponically at the CFE Farmstead using no pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. We are now inviting a limited number of community members to share in our bounty through our new CSA.
Like a traditional CSA, members will get great-tasting fruits, vegetables, and herbs that we have grown for you. Unlike a traditional CSA, though, our season starts in the winter because our farm is indoors. In addition, at fixed intervals, members will receive ornamental plants that can be raised at home using instructions provided by our patented software. Occasionally, we will toss in products made at the Farmstead, such as our natural soaps and other goodies. There will also be opportunities to participate in hands-on demonstrations and other plant-centric events at the Farmstead.
During our initial March-to-August season, members will receive installments every two weeks. A typical box might include lots of fresh salad greens, an assortment of herbs, and peppers or spring onions. There might also be cut flowers or other plants that we have grown on an experimental basis.
Cost: $250 for 6 months of biweekly installments, payable at time or order.
$150 for 3 months of biweekly installments, payable at time of order.
Pickup Schedule: Members will get their shares at the Farmstead every other Wednesday starting on March 8th, 2023. The pickup dates are as follows: 3/8, 3/22, 4/5, 4/19, 5/3, 5/17, 5/31, 6/14, 6/28, 7/12, 7/26, 8/9, 8/23. Please indicate your preferred pickup time on the order form. If you are unable to get one of your boxes at the scheduled time, we will be happy to make alternate arrangements or to donate it on your behalf!
